A few years into my professional life I was making a decent sum at the end of every month. Although not happy about how I was making it because being in sales when your heart isn't is not easy.
As someone in his mid-twenties I felt I was missing out on a lot when I saw my friends travel around the world, some for leisure and most for work. I wasn't fortunate enough to land a job that required me to travel, I still ain't. I envy you if your work lets you travel... Yes I know you will say work-travel isn't fun at all.. but at-least you have an opportunity to add the fun to it! So the yearning had to be put to an end, I started asking my close friends about their travel plans hoping that I'd have a travel partner for wherever big or small I decide to drift to. But with all efforts in vain no extravagant plans ever came to be!
So I decided to go SOLO!
“The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.” -- Henry David Thoreau, author and poet
Truer words than these were never spoken.
I started keeping track of places I could go for a solo trip, since I grew up in home full of architects and interior designers I am aesthetically inclined. Wandering the narrow passageways of old weary monuments doesn't seem to me like a dull idea. I know I would enjoy my time appreciating the beauty of whatever is in sight. So I took to Google! Co-incidentally a Facebook friend code-name: Jazz was of great help while I planned my first solo adventure.
